Signed Original Oil Painting and Limited Edition Prints by Derek Higginson (b 1930)

Studied at the Burslem School of Art from 1943 aged 13, gaining a National Diploma in Lithography and Design and left the School in 1950.
Even in his early years Derek Higginson was showing signs of talent. His art teacher sent him to Burslem School of Art with some work he had done in class and was to show it to Reginald Haggar. Mr Haggar told him to start at the art school the following Monday. L S Lowry visited the school on one occasion and Derek was fortunate enough to meet him and was influenced by him for many years to come. He spent several years designing for Ridways Cauldon.

Exhibited with the Group “Unit of Ten” which included Harry Smith and Bill Harper, Exhibiting in the Midlands and North of England. He was also the Art teacher at Bishops Bright and Saint Gregory’s Schools.
